Hard times give rise to greater demand for protection, but also amplify the negative consequences of such defections, given the risk of drawing retaliation from abroad that could worsen economic conditions. International trade rules include provisions ...

We put forward a framework to evaluate the potential impact of international competition on firm performance, and we highlight two points. First, it is important to consider effects on productive efficiency and market power in an integrated framework. ...

We introduce firm and worker heterogeneity into a model of innovation-driven endogenous growth. Individuals who differ in ability sort into either a research sector or a manufacturing sector that produces differentiated goods. Each research project ...

A vast literature on international trade predicts that political institutions affect both the choice of trade partners (extensive margin) and trade volumes (intensive margin). Yet most analyses ignore the former margin, while their estimates of the latter ...

This paper examines how prices, markups and marginal costs respond to trade liberalization. We develop a framework to estimate markups from production data with multi-product firms. This approach does not require assumptions on the market structure or ...

Do trading partners’ political institutions matter in international trade? In answering this question, researchers typically relate aggregate measures of institutional structure with total volumes of bilateral trade, while pairs that do not trade are ...

The multilateral trade regime has significantly evolved in both depth of policy commitments among WTO members and breadth of membership. As members deepened policy commitments toward each other, total membership simultaneously expanded from 23 countries ...

We study the distributional consequences of trade in a world with two industries and two heterogeneous factors of production. Productivity in each production unit reflects the ability of the manager and the abilities of the workers, with complementarity ...

We study patterns of foreign direct investment (FDI) in a multi-country world economy. We develop a model featuring non-homothetic preferences for quality and monopolistic competition in which specialization is purely demand-driven and the decision to ...

In this article, we introduce an empirical framework to analyze how firm performance is affected by increased globalization. Using this framework, we discuss recent work on measuring the impact of various shocks firms face in the global marketplace, such ...

In this paper, I survey the recent theoretical literature that incorporates heterogeneous labor into models of international trade. The models with heterogeneous labor have been used to study how talent dispersion can be a source of comparative advantage, ...

Instead, the governments could practice unilateral free trade and otherwise let goods flow where they may. The fact that governments actively pursue a myriad of policies that alter the incentives to trade already suggests that their goals are more nuanced ...

While neoclassical theory emphasizes the impact of trade on wage inequality between occupations and sectors, more recent theories of firm heterogeneity point to the impact of trade on wage dispersion within occupations and sectors. Using linked employer ...

We examine how firm heterogeneity influences aggregate welfare through endogenous firm selection. We consider a homogeneous firm model that is a special case of a heterogeneous firm model with a degenerate productivity distribution. Keeping all structural ...

Developing countries have increasingly opened their economies to trade. Research about trade policy in developed countries focuses on a bottom-up process by identifying economic preferences of domestic groups. We know less about developing countries. We ...
